    I did...I am gonna make it all back anyway within a few weeks, so no worries for me, saving my NE2 for the HTC HD2!

    So, how many other psychos like me?

    So two accounts on our share plan rec'd storms last year around November release date. The one storm is the primary acct and has a new every year upgrade ability. Since we have been customers for such a long time, they are allowing the other to go at 1 yr price...which is 349.00 plus 100.00 rebate. So 249. Not half bad. Now if I can sell my old berry to try and cover the spread.

    $279 in-store, minus $50 for yearly upgrade, minus $100 mail-in rebate.

    No complaints here. Better than waiting to update her Pearl until after April....

    you pay full retail for a phone and the f'd up thing is if your phone messes up they send you a refurbished one. **** you off? Does me.

    Then pay RIM to fix your brand new sparkly overpriced phone... That is if you're okay paying and leaving the phone with them for a few weeks.

    as i said in another thread, it's gonna take a whole lot of convincing to get me to pay full retail. that's a VERY steep price point. heck i could buy a Desktop PC for less and it will wipe the floor with a cell phone.

    I bought 2 - one for my first line (NE1 because I got a flyer in the mail that allowed me an upgrade), and the second, I threw on a BOGO for a (new line) family line for $279. Once I received the S2s, I activated both storms, and unlocked (globally) both #s. I then took my 2nd (new) line, and swapped the S2 with an old Chocolate Bar phone I had, just for emergencies, so for $10/month extra, I have 2 S2s for $179 ($279 - $100 rebate), plus, I might sell the 2nd Storm2 on ebay as an unlocked unused Storm2, or keep it for a spare backup.

    Pretty sweet.
    2 Storm2s $279 -$100 rebate.
    2nd line $240 ($10/month for 2 years....)
    and possible to sell one Storm2 online for ~$500 to over $700 (according to what I've seen on Ebay.)
    Using a nice solid Storm2 - Priceless!

    Cheers,
    B.D.
